Well, Here is the "full pool". After several weeks of not being able to swim, we are "back in business". Couldn't have come at a better time. The kids have been swimming every day. The temp is 86 already and it's not even July 1. That's how warm it is here in Florida and only going to get hotter.

I got my scrapbook "mojo" back. Since I got my room done, I have been working all the time. I still have some totes to go through and sort out. I have been working on an ABC Pregnany book for my sister in law who is due in September. I have about 10 more pages to go and then I will be done and can work on other stuff. I am hoping to post some pictures as soon as I can. Steve even had Verizon come in. Now not only can I watch TV but I can watch all my HGTV shows as I work. My favorite show to watch while I work is The Wonder Years. They started showing it from the pilot episode and I just can't turn it off. They also put on Designing Women (although it hasn't been on locally because they put on the Devil Rays). I used to love that show!!!!! My kids think I am crazy and think the shows are "dumb". What do they know? hehe.

No vacation planned this summer. Too much going on. We were really hoping to squeeze a trip to go to Cincinnati but every week is filled with the kids activities. I keep hoping for a rainy day just so we can "slow down" but no such luck.

My "bff" Lisa came for a visit last week and we had a blast. Got pedicures, dumped some $ into the local economy with a trip to the LSS. We also had a BBQ and were able to do lunch. It was just like old times. When you coming back, Lisa? Actually, I am hoping to head up her way in the Fall. Can't wait.

Not much else going on in our house. Just trying to keep the kids entertained and busy. School used to start the first week in August but now they have pushed it back. So, August 20th can't get here soon enough. I love having my kids home but they are driving me nuts. It was sooooo much easier when they were younger and you could do more stuff with them. Now everything is "dumb". They want to do more expensive things like go to the movies, go to the mall.

Have a great Thursday..............................................

Not much too blog about.

Kids are out of school--already driving me crazy. It's going to be a long summer.

We finally got some much needed rain here in Tampa.

Still not swimming in the pool. It's got water but the water is not "swimmable" yet. I think once the kids can swim, they can burn off the extra energy they have.

I got my scrapbook room done. I am hoping to be actually working in it this weekend. I am taking the time to go through EVERYTHING before I put it away. I have a lot of stuff that I am getting rid of because I just won't use it.

Greg's playing baseball 2-3 days a week.

Mark still going to Huntington 4 mornings a week. So I still have to get up and out of the house.

Emily's "bored". Can't find anything to do.

Elizabeth is still wining that "if I had a car....blah blah blah". She goes to "Journalism Summer School" next week at the University of South Carolina. So, I will have at least 4 days of NOT hearing "if I had a car".

Best of all, my "BFF" will here here in town to visit. Can't wait. We won't get to spend too much time together, but hopefully we can squeeze in a pedicure and a trip to a LSS. Oh yeah, we are hoping to plan a trip for my birthday this fall. Lookout Chicago---here we come.

Told you that it's been pretty uneventful here in my house. Maybe in a few days, I will have something to tell.
